We're at war ... with failure!!!

Is that a gripping enough post title?

The excuse for it is that I think the same explosion of activity that governments can get to when there's a war on ought to be mobilized to deal with the fact that our present economic course is unsustainable and there's no "Plan B."

It's going to take a major effort to transform a world full of 6.5 billion people to raise living standards and lower resource consumption. Modern science and technology will play a big part, but they need to be harnessed by democracy, not profit.
